Magdalena passed away Wednesday, February 28, 2024 surrounded by her family in her home at St. Benedicts Health Center.

Magdalena was born October 31, 1929 in Hettinger County, North Dakota to Kasper and Katherine (Senn) Greff. She grew up and attended country school near Mott. She also attended Mount Saint Benedict in Crookston, Minnesota. 

Shortly after returning home, she met Fred Kuntz. The two were united in marriage on October 14, 1947 at St. Placidus Catholic Church in Mott. Following their marriage, Maggie and Fred moved to the Kuntz homestead south of Dickinson where they raised their family.  To this union, nine children were born: Josephine, Edward, Donna Mae, Thomas, Timothy, Lawrence, Linda, Eugene, and Robert. After Fred passed in 1987, Maggie was very proud of getting her driver’s license. In August of 1993, Maggie moved to Dickinson. She moved to Benedict Court and St. Benedict’s Health Center in October of 2016, where she stayed until her passing.

Maggie was a member of the Leap Year Homemakers, Christian Mothers, St. Ann’s Auxiliary, Catholic Daughters, St. Joseph’s Hospital Auxiliary, St. Patrick’s Catholic Church, and St. Pius Verein. She volunteered her time at St. Joseph’s Hospital in the OR waiting room, the Trinity Mardi Gras, and as a clerk for Range 96 elections for twenty years. Her faith was very important to her and she was a dedicated prayer warrior at Eucharistic Adoration for many years.

Maggie loved to travel, and one of her highlights was going to Rome. She enjoyed many card games, particularly Pinochle and Pokeno. She also liked to garden and raise chickens. She would can the vegetables she grew, as well as make jelly. Maggie was a great cook, and would have food for any visitors that stopped by. Everyone was always welcomed at Maggie’s table. A few of her specialties were sour cream twists, German potato salad, chokecherry jelly, pickles, and caramel rolls.

Maggie loved Christmas, particularly decorating for it and baking Christmas cookies. She would also prepare all the large dinners for family holidays, not just Christmas. 

Maggie was a devoted mother and grandmother. She made baby blankets for each grandchild. Her best times were spent with family and she will be greatly missed.

Maggie is survived by her children, Josie (Jim) Dentinger of Papillon, NE, Ed (Marina) Kuntz of Dickinson, Donna (Marv) Martel of Bismarck, Tom (Rose) Kuntz of Dickinson, Tim (Carmy) Kuntz of Stayton, OR, Larry (Darla) Kuntz of Dickinson, Linda (Aaron) Krebs of Dickinson, Eugene (Gail) Kuntz of Dickinson, and Bob Kuntz of Dickinson; 26 grandchildren; 55 great-grandchildren; 2 great-great-grandchildren; sisters-in-law, Rose Fitterer, Mildred Kuntz, and Carol Schmidt; brother-in-law, Peter Kuntz; and numerous nieces and nephews.

She is preceded in death by her parents, Kasper and Katherine; husband, Fred; and siblings, Katie (John) Messer, Pete (Maggie) Greff, Rose (Jake) Mosbrucker, Simon (Mae) Greff, Anna Mary (John) Steiner, and Cecilia (Nick) Olheiser.
